Today is quite a big one in terms of the Oscar Pistorius murder trial, as long awaited SMS contents from the various cellphones have been read out in court. Reeva’s text / Whatsapp messages have revealed that she was scared of him sometimes.
Oscar Pistorius’s girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp told the athlete she was sometimes scared of him in a text message nearly three weeks before he shot her dead, a North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria heard on Monday.
“I’m scared of you sometimes and how you snap at me and how you react to me,” Steenkamp said in a message after the athlete thought she had flirted with another man, the court heard.
Police cellphone analyst Captain Francois Moller began testifying on Monday afternoon.
He gave evidence on phones given to him after Pistorius shot Steenkamp dead on Valentine’s Day last year.
After being sworn in, Moller said he was given four cellphones – two Blackberries and two iPhones, and two iPads and a Macbook computer on 15 February by investigating officer Warrant Officer Hilton Botha.
Botha was taken off the case and later resigned.
Steenkamp texted: “You make me happy ninety percent of the time and I think we are amazing together… but I am not some other bitch… trying to kill your vibe…
“I’m the girl who fell in love with you but I’m also the girl who gets side-stepped when you are in a shit mood… I get snapped at and told my accent and voices are annoying.”
The message began: “You have picked on me excessively… I do everything to make you happy and you do everything to throw tantrums… ” The line was part of a lengthy Whatsapp text she sent him on 27 January where she expressed concern over his behaviour at a lunch they had attended, which she said they had to leave early because of him.
Then this, from the Independent:
Ms Steenkamp also wrote she was trying “her best” to make him happy but felt he “didn’t treat her like a lady” and recalled an incident where he “criticised” her so “loudly everyone” could hear it.
The model said tried to make him “proud” and present herself “well” while he was busy chatting to the press and fans at parties.
In a separate incident, the athlete accused her of chatting to a man, “touching his arm” and ignoring him. Pistorius sobbed in court as the messages were read out.
